At the top of this page there is now an "Announcement".
I contacted FrankZ to see if it would be possible somehow, to have a link in this forum back to the OpenCPN documentation
This is the result. Thank you very much FrankZ.
There were very limited ways that this could be done keeping it simple. The Forum announcement facility was a quick solution.
I wanted a link like this as I have noticed that many new users search the forum for a solution to their problem, even though the problem and a solution is already documented in the wiki.
A forum is great for discussions but doesn't always shine as a documentation
facility. It is very easy to find a "false" solution in an old post. Meanwhile the issue at hand has developed quite a lot with time in other threads and posts. In other words, many users would avoid wasting time by having a look at the documentation first.
If they can't find what hey are looking for, then this forum is the right place to ask, and perhaps the documentation needs adjusting.
So what do you think?
Should the announcement include other links or information?
